Albany Pierce St. bike path project - help needed

We are encountering a lot of opposition to a bike path project on
Pierce St. in Albany adjacent to the Albany Hill condos. Almost all
the opposition is from the residents of 555 Pierce St., the tallest
building. This complex was built with 1 parking space per unit
whereas the other buildings (545 and 535) were built with more than 1.

The current plan to rehabilitate the street and install a path is
parking neutral. However, the opposition is demanding that the city
install *MORE* on-street parking spaces than exist currently by
eliminating the path part of the project.
